Increase the take up of free early education for eligible 2 year olds living in the top 30% most deprived areas in the borough


What does this mean?

Two year olds are eligible for 570 hours of free childcare a year if they meet one or more criteria set by the Government. This measure shows how many parents of two year olds living in the borough’s more deprived areas are taking advantage of this free childcare.


Why is this important?

This measure is important because it shows how well the Council is communicating and promoting childcare entitlement and providing support to residents in more deprived wards.
